Take Care of Your Hair While You Style It

Sep 8, 2008
It is very ironic how women with beautiful straight hair use hair curling irons to curl their hair. Those who have curly hairs on the other hand, strive to have a natural looking straight hair. This does not mean that these women do not like their hair. In fact, these women know more about hair care than anyone else does.

Although most women know that styling their hair is a torture, they still do this. You might be wondering why. This is because women love to reinvent themselves. Most want to achieve a new look and changing the hairstyle is often the best way to do this. Try to imagine a friend who had a long straight hair for quite a while and think how she will look like if she cuts it short or simply give it gentle wave. She will surely look different.

Hair plays a vital role on how a person looks. The hair color and its length have a huge impact on the physical appearance of a person.
However, it is also essential that you protect your hair from damage. If you are someone who loves to change your hairstyle frequently, you should know how to take care of it.

The first thing that you have to remember is that heat damages the hair. As much as possible, avoid exposing your hair to too much heat. If you use blow dryers in a daily basis, make sure that you use it properly. When blow drying, keep it two inches away from your hair. Choose a good hair dryer as well.

Avoid styling your hair with chemicals. Aside from heat, chemicals are the other major contributor to hair damage. If your hair has recently undergone a chemical treatment, make sure that you apply products designed for chemically treated hair. Consult your hairstylist for this. If you use the wrong product on your hair, this may lead to a chemical reaction that will cause serious damage for your hair.

If you are using styling irons such as the hair curling irons, make sure to use them properly. Again, invest in high quality devices especially if you plan to use it regularly. Cheap devices heat unevenly causing burns at portions of your hair. Do not leave the irons for more than eight seconds on your hair. Style them in small sections so that it will not take longer for the iron to stay on your hair.

Learn how to take care of your hair. Keep in mind that there are different types of hair. Know the ways to care of your hair type. If you have dry hair, do not shampoo daily and apply deep conditioning once or twice a week. If you have oily hair on the other hand, shampoo daily and use a shampoo designed for oily hair.

Women love to style their hair. This gives them a chance to experiment on different looks. However, styling can be damaging. That is why it is important to invest in high quality styling tools. They should also know how to take care of their hair so that it will remain beautiful no matter how they style it.
